(Corollary - Electing the same person over and over and expecting a different outcome is insanity)
Ironic, in light of these awards, that the current American president is doing his level best to inaugurate a communist regime in America, and that he was voted into office by a nation that sacrificed endless blood and national treasure to defeat that very - and intensely parasitic - national policy.
Live long enough, see everything.
Perhaps there’s a fund we could contribute to to get a statue of Maggie Thatcher put up nearby. The three of them deserve the credit.

And Lech Walesa, founder of the Solidarity movement that led the anti-communist struggle in Poland, has often paid homage to both men and told the AP in a recent interview that he deeply respected Reagan.
Reagan should have a monument in every city, Walesa said.
Yes, yes he should.
